Scientific study finds our planet’s magnetic field was on the verge of a catastrophic collapse

According to a recent scientific paper, our planet narrowly escaped a catastrophic collapse of its magnetic field, the protective layer that shields Earth, some 565 million years ago. Scientists say that had the magnetic field collapsed, life on Earth would have been nearly impossible.
